Information evenings

Get your free guide to fostering here

These sessions are informal, friendly and a great chance to find out more about fostering.

There’s no pressure to sign-up. They are primarily for people who aren’t sure and just want more information.

There’ll be a short presentation and DVD, followed by a chance to ask questions. You’ll also meet some current foster carers, young people, family placement social workers and our recruitment officer.
